Since the ukulele is big again, let's return to the time when the Ukulele was first introduced into popular culture as we present this compilation of ukulele songs from public-domain recorded collections. These represent some of the best available tracks, lovingly curated by generous souls and we thank them for the time they've put into keeping these performances alive.

The EP features previously unreleased material, and some tracks that were only sent to radio stations in previous years (available for the first time publicly). Fudge's smooth rendition of the Carpenters hit "Merry Christmas Darling" is a highlight, Chester The Chicken clucks his way through a holiday standard and Lee Rosevere offers two entertaining instrumentals.

Here is an assortment of pieces gathered from various sources. Most of them originate through my typical process, which is to develop the score while solving a compositional problem. Several of the pieces began as character studies. To get hold of the character of interest, I often wrote some words to start. Others address structural challenges; such pieces can begin by sketching an overall shape or fragment of modal polyphony. For some, I have forgotten what the problem was now that piece is...

Delver and Amanda are characters who appear and interact throughout the album, which follows a simple boy-meets-girl storyline. There’s also a cameo by another character, Ray.   A pair of  multi-section instrumental pieces – “Telescope” – bookend the story, while “Incubate” draws on the same source material.   Lyrics and more available at http://unthunk.ca

This project began over 2 years ago, when Gurdonark posted a tweet to MrDoob's online art-site Harmony, and I suggested we each draw four pictures, and then other had to compose a piece of music to match the drawings.  Through many delays (including a cross-country move for myself) the drawings and songs were completed and you can see each drawing by clicking on the title of the song.

I’ve been a fan of Rodd’s a little over 15 years, when I first heard the MSR Madness CDs, and started collecting whatever song-poems I could. In Canada, there aren’t a lot of them to be found..

After completing my over-the-top conceptual space prog-rock album Lion on the Beach (by the Electric Amygdala ), I wanted to write new material, but this time approach it in the exact opposite manner. I limited myself instrumentally to solo piano (which ended being augmented by strings on a few tracks) and deliberately tried to compose as simply as possible. I didn't overthink anything, or stop myself if the melodies seemed too cheesy, or if it seemed I was dangerously close to new-age Narada...

The musical duo of Marion Clemens and Louise Wynberg had the longest running show on VPW Channel 11 in Winnipeg, where once a week they would play their favourite songs (mostly from Louise's memory) sometimes in the studio and sometimes on location with Marion on drums and Louise on keyboards and vocals.

Fields is the third album released by the Italian one-man-act Bessemerr. Under the shell of noisy electro-dub and electro-acoustic suggestions,the entire work is inspired by the futurist artist Ardengo Soffici : like his poetry, Fields tries to re-create the junction between the profound empathy with the homeland (Tuscany: the same for both) and the impulse to dynamism, a typical futurist feature.

Very much in the style of Jean Michel-Jarre and spacey-masters The Orb, these four tracks show Adam's melodic side, but still retain the hypnotic quality from his other work. By using no percussion or drums, the music has a floating quality, with movement propelled by the rhythm of the melodies.

"The Gold Room" was created using a combination of audio manipulation techniques inspired by the experiments of Brian Joseph Davis and Alvin Lucier. Each piece is the result of playing all the songs from a particular artists 'gold collection' (or greatest hits release) simultaneously. The sound is then played back to itself over and over (often over a hundred times at least) as if it were playing a room over loudspeakers, adding a new layer of natural room reverb with every pass....

The Phreezound Orchestra is project of arranged music 100% comprised of sounds sourced from the freesound.org website. The intention was to use the individual sounds and create new pieces that could quite possibly be played by an actual orchestra/band. Special thanks to all the original musicians/uploaders for their work.

Scrap Heap makes his debut on Happy Puppy with the experimental noise EP Outset. Scott Graue, the man behind Scrap Heap, is also a fellow netlabeler and propriator of Oceanbase label. Unlike a lot of noise music produced, Scott's approach to taking a single solitary sample and stretching, expanding and morphing it beyond it's original form, is intelligent and dynamic. Using distortion and tones as percussion, the sound constantly moves and keeps you guessing and interested in what will happen...

Just in time for fall, the ambient electronic work of Graffiti Mechanism joins the Happy Puppy label with his EP "Harvest Moon". The title is definitely an indication of the kind of mood the music gives, somewhere in between the organic feeling of the season and the electronic warmth that can happen with the ambient genre. Go for a walk with your earbuds in a pumpkin patch. We hope you enjoy this EP as much as we do.

Recently, I came across this commercial release and wondered if it would be possible to create a version using only tracks available for free download online (Creative Commons licensed tracks) since many of the original composers are no longer with us. Turns out, it is possible! Thanks to a variety of online classical search engines (and the gracious permission of all the ensembles and artists for allowing redistribution), I am very proud to present this collection, which I will refer to as The...

Well, here it is! Volume 1 (diestro) of MANOS: The Remix of Fate! Back in June I discovering that in addition to the film being remastered in hi-def for DVD and Blu-Ray, the soundtrack to the cult-classic bad film Manos: The Hands of Fate was also released on Bandcamp , and licensed under CC-BY-NC. So the call for remixes was issued, and this compilation is the result. This has been fantastic to put together, and I couldn't have done it without the generous help of Marc Weidenbaum of...

After releasing two singles on Happy Puppy, the time has come for the full-length offering The Anechoic Experience from the band Unthunk. Essentially the work of Trevor Tunnacliffe, he is joined by a host of friends on this collection of dense and complex compositions including Maria Alejandra Velásquez-Sossa, David Sossa Fernández and jazz drummer Buff Allen. It's quite unlike anything we've ever released, and has a unique serious classical-style about it, but also with a slight wink. As...

Yes, it's another album by Cagey House that defies description. Literally, every time Dave Keifer sends me his latest creation, I have no idea what to expect. When going through his catalog, each album sounds very different from others, but they also all share a common logic (as I found with his previous release) - an identifiable trait that follows through within its own universe. In other words, just download it and listen. Aloha Moonmen features many layers of playing with samples, and...

Just in time for Halloween 2010, Happy Puppy is proud to release a new virtual spoooooky 7" single by legendary scrappy popsters The Itchy Creeps: Sludge, Swill, Scum and Quagmire. Featuring a messy punk-take on Grieg's "In The Hall of The Mountain King", the single also features a brand new track "Gorilla Foot", a throwback to those good ol' spooky 60s Halloween party records.

Morgan has been performing and writing for years, getting her start at The Merchant, in Kingston ON. Since then, she formed a trio and released her first EP called Turn, one of the tracks featured here "Go On" won a Toronto Independent Music Award for Best Song...

Fresh from the farm, Chester Chicken clucks and bukaws his way through a sure-fire hit combination of tunes, especially chosen by Chester. Tastefully backed up by the Digital Chicken Consort (and help from Clara, his little chickadee) Chester makes these songs completely his own. You'll never forget it. Also contains a special European bonus track!
